TAKE ACTION AGAINST BUILD BACK BETTER FRAUD: Democrats Plan to Vote on $1.75 Trillion Socialist Spending Bill

“How does one man assert his power over another, Winston? … Winston thought. “By making him suffer”, he said. ― George Orwell, 1984

Democrats plan to vote on $1.75 trillion socialist spending bill (aka Build Back Better) after passing $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill.  This will likely be our last chance to thwart or reduce the impact of this socialist legislation.

Click here to send your email to urge Senator Joe Manchin and Senator Kyrsten Sinema to continue to stand by their convictions to protect American families from the damage that would most likely result if the reckless Build Back Better bill becomes law.

The $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill passed on November 5, 2021.  Democrats plan to vote on the $1.75 trillion socialist spending bill, which was referred to as the reconciliation bill and is called Build Back Better, during the week of November 15, 2021.  The bill was allegedly reduced from $3.5 trillion to $1.75 trillion in hopes of garnering Senators Manchin’s and Sinema’s vote.  However, the $1.75 trillion amount could be increased or decreased.

U.S.  Senator Lindsey Graham had this to say about the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better bill. “This is the biggest step toward socialism in my lifetime.”  Socialism is hostile toward a wide range of liberties that Americans have cherished for hundreds of years.  Socialism is very oppressive toward religious liberties especially towards Christians and Jews.  Socialism has a long history of suppressing freedom of speech which we witness daily in the leftist run “cancel culture.”

Energy costs, grocery expenses, Social Security, Medicare, the economy and jobs are all in jeopardy from the $1.75 trillion in new and excessive spending proposed in the Build Back Better bill.

High inflation and gas prices caused by recent excessive congressional spending are hurting millions of American families and threatening the economy.  Adding $1.75 trillion in new spending to the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill would escalate, perhaps even double, the already high inflation rate on millions of hard working Americans.   The increasing gasoline prices and energy costs  will  likely  go  even  higher  with  the left’s obsession with the New Green Deal which is a huge  part  of  the  Build Back  Better  bill.

This bill will take away valuable resources at a time when measures should be taken to secure the future of Social Security and Medicare.

Additionally, the cost of paying for these never paid for by taxpayer social programs would further hurt the economy and American jobs.
It is fiscally irresponsible for congress to throw more new money on the inflation fire that  will  break  the budgets of more  American  families  and  burden  them with entitlement  programs  that  will  endure forever.

Senator Joe Manchin and Senator Kyrsten Sinema have both expressed concerns regarding the costs of Build Back Better.  Both senators have been non-committal regarding the bill. Democrats must have the vote of both senators to pass the $1.75 trillion socialist spending bill.

Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send to urge Senator Joe Manchin and Senator Kyrsten Sinema to continue to stand by their convictions to protect American families from the damage that would most likely result if the reckless Build Back Better bill becomes law.

This will likely be our last chance to thwart or further reduce the impact of this socialist bill.  Your emails are important to show support to two senators who will make or break this reckless legislation.

Sean Hannity / Tucker Carlson VIDEO: RE — FBI Raid on Project Veritas Journalist’s Homes

James O’Keefe: “I woke up to a pre-dawn raid — banging on my door. I went to the door to answer the door and there were 10 FBI agents with a battering ram, white blinding lights. They turned me around, handcuffed me and threw me against the hallway. I was partially clothed in front of my neighbors. They confiscated my phone. They raided my apartment…So, I’ve heard the phrase, ‘The process is the punishment.’ I didn’t really understand what that meant until this weekend. And Sean, I wouldn’t wish this on any journalist.”

James O’Keefe: “These are about certain principles that are so fundamental. Our First Amendment in this country. I’m calling upon all journalists to take a stand against this. A source comes to us with information. I don’t even decide to publish it. If they can do this to me, if they can do this to this journalist and raid my home and take my reporter notes, they’ll do it to any journalist. This is about something very fundamental in this country. I don’t know what direction this country is going in, but journalists everywhere have to rise up because we broke no laws here. They could do it to me. They’ll do it to anybody.”

Tucker Carlson: “Here’s yet another amazing story for you tonight. So, right before the last election, the president’s daughter, Ashley Biden, somehow was separated from her diary. She says it was stolen. So, in the pretext of that, a year later, FBI agents just raided the homes of several working journalists, including a current employee at Project Veritas. They broke down doors in pre-dawn raids. They were trying to seize material that might embarrass the Biden family…and so they did this for him [Biden]. Pretty amazing, really.”

Tucker Carlson: “Okay. So, the FBI / DOJ is saying that Ashley Biden’s diary was stolen in a burglary. Now, we can’t verify it either way, that does not appear to be true. Actually, it seems like Ashley Biden left the diary in the house when she moved out. But whatever, let’s say for the sake of argument that the diary was stolen. The FBI raids still don’t make any sense. No one is claiming these journalists stole the diary. The material in question is already public. Some of it is pretty awful. It’s been on the internet for a year. We decided not to cover it by the way, it’s awful. But most amazingly, in the point that O’Keefe makes, is the one that stands. Since when does the FBI respond to domestic burglaries? Can you call the DOJ the next time your car gets broken into? Oh, you’re not the president’s drug addicted kid? Okay. Got it. This is totally third world. And it’s an attack on press freedom. Obviously. You’re raiding a journalist’s house because that journalist may have had something to do with embarrassing the president’s kid? Where’s the White House Correspondents’ Association on this? Where are all the ‘press freedom’ people? If you’re looking for an aggressive attack on freedom of the press, there you have it. Maybe someone should say something, maybe.”

Homosexuality in Scripture

Brad Miner: Catholics who want gay “marriage” can have their version of the faith as long as they’re willing to have it without the warrant of the Bible.

What Is Man? is a new book – new anyway in English, having been published at the end of 2019 in Italian as Che cosa è l’uomo? – from the Pontifical Biblical Commission. As such, it has no identified author or authors. (The English version was prepared by Fathers Fearghus O’Fearghail and Adrian Graffy.) It carries the subtitle, A Journey through Biblical Anthropology and is a defense of the Biblical roots of Catholicism’s view of human beings and our relationship to God.

When first published, there was a flurry of rumors in the press claiming that the book (either subtly or explicitly) suggested homosexuality should be considered normative. Fr. James Martin, for one, asserted that What Is Man? explains one of the Bible’s key condemnations of homosexual acts, the story of the destruction of Sodom in Genesis, as not really about sexual transgression at all but, rather, a lack of hospitality among the Sodomites. And there is a passage in What Is Man? that confirms the sins of the Sodomites were not exclusively, well, sodomy. But it’s also clear that the “men of Sodom” sought to “know” Lot and his angelic visitors, and that “to know” in the context “is a euphemism for sexual relations.”

What Is Man? Is divided into four long chapters: 1. The Human Being Created by God; 2. The Human Being in the Garden; 3. The Human Family; and 4. The Human Being in History. I’m going to consider here just a part of that third chapter, because it’s the source of the controversy that wasn’t. This is unfair to the entirety of Commission’s work, but let me explain.

It was sociologist James Chowning Davies (1918-2012) who articulated the “J curve.” That’s the idea that social revolutions are driven by “rising individual expectations and falling levels of perceived well-being.” It seems to me that the J curve with regard to the sexual revolution applies only to the Roman Catholic Church. (Well, it may affect some Protestant denominations too – but not many.) This is because the Church pretty much stands alone in opposition to the rising expectations among homosexual activists. After all, LGBTQ victories have been numerous and, in the United States, at least, there are arguably no more battles to wage against the “heteronormative” culture. So much is this the case that I’m not sure American culture can any longer be called heteronormative, except in terms of actual practice, i.e., most of us are “straight.”

Even that fact is undermined by the decline in the number of marriages, the rise in the number of divorces, and high levels of extramarital sex and pornography use. It should be terrifying that these things are now the norm. But many of us are somehow not terrified.

Anyway, sights are now aimed at the Church: the last bastion of resistance. The revolution that will come from homosexual activists’ “falling levels of perceived well-being” won’t result in burned and looted churches, so much as in abandonment of the Church by gay men and lesbian women. We should be pleased there’ll be no bloodshed, and that Fr. Martin may become an Episcopal bishop. Unless. . .there is schism, as seems to loom in Germany over just this matter. Schism is a kind of revolution.

But back to What Is Man? and Chapter 3, which begins:

God said: “It is not good that ’ādām should be alone (Gen 2:18). That the Creator wished that ‘in the beginning’ humanity should be constituted by man and woman (Gen 1:27; 2:21-23) invites us to consider carefully this fundamental human difference and to explore its meaning.”

The text goes on to emphasize the equal dignity and complementarity of man and woman, or as it specifically has it, “the two sexes.” The authors also stress that it’s love that should govern us and cautions that the union of the sexes is not without difficulties, almost seeming to quote Shakespeare’s Lysander: “The course of true love never did run smooth.”

Because What Is Man? is a book by Bible scholars acting as anthropologists, there is some interesting commentary on Creation, more likely to start debate rather than settle it, especially with regard to the literal interpretation of Adam, Eve, and the Fall. I’ll have to leave that to more capable debaters.

I’m concerned with what seems beyond debate, especially in terms of those rumors that the book opens the door to a new Catholic view of homosexuality.

It should come as no surprise that the treatment of homosexuality in the book mirrors longstanding Catholic doctrine, especially the CDF’s 1986 letter to bishops, “On the Pastoral Care of Homosexual Persons.” Here again is the essential distinction between homosexual inclination and homosexual practice. What Is Man? acknowledges that Biblical affirmations against same-sex unions are widely “seen as no longer relevant.” The trouble with that is that Biblical anthropology is entirely on the side of the Catechism’s description of homosexual behavior as “inherently disordered.”

With reference to Genesis 1:28 (“Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it), it may be affirmed that because

the system of “separation” [two sexes], and therefore of the diversities instituted by the creative word of God, finds its key in the difference between man and woman, male and female; its symbolic value is contradicted and undermined by the union of persons of the same sex.

In dealing directly with the Bible’s condemnations of homosexuality, What Is Man? provides a tidy overview of specific passages from the Hebrew Scriptures, most notably Leviticus, and the New Testament – specifically and dramatically in the words of St. Paul. Paul drew a crucial connection between homosexuality and idolatry, suggesting that homosexual relations are a kind of self-worship, inherently unwelcoming to strangers – the ones we meet in procreation. Which tells us a great deal about where many of our contemporaries stand today.

Fr. Martin, the Germans, and their fellow travelers can have their version of the faith, as long as they’re willing to have a Catholicism without the warrant of Scripture.

Biden Mulls Shutting Down Pipeline That Supplies Energy To Midwest

Saule Omarova is a Kazakh-American attorney, academic, and public policy advisor who was nominated to serve as comptroller of the currency by President Joe Biden. Omarova is a Communist.

  • The Biden administration is reviewing the possible ramifications of shutting down a key pipeline transporting crude oil and natural gas from Canada to Michigan.
  • “We have a state in Michigan that uses the most residential propane in the nation,” said Jason Hayes, the director of environmental policy for the Mackinac Center for Public Policy. “And yet, we’re seriously considering shutting down this pipeline and giving these people not even two or three months notice, just basically saying, ‘well, sorry, you’re gonna be on your own.’”
  • Line 5 carries about 540,000 barrels of oil and gas per day from Canada to Michigan, which relies on the pipeline for most of its propane needs, according to its operator Enbridge.

The Biden administration is reviewing the possible ramifications of shutting down a key pipeline transporting crude oil and natural gas from Canada into the Midwest.

The White House recently initiated a study of the economic impacts of closing the Line 5 pipeline, principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre confirmed at a press conference Monday. She added that the Army Corps of Engineers was preparing an environmental impact study on shutting down the pipeline.

President Joe Biden faced significant criticism last week after Politico reported his administration’s decision to study Line 5.

“As we enter the winter months and temperatures drop across the Midwest, the termination of Line 5 will undoubtedly further exacerbate shortages and price increases in home heating fuels like natural gas and propane at a time when Americans are already facing rapidly rising energy prices, steep home heating costs, global supply shortages, and skyrocketing gas prices,” Republican Ohio Rep. Bob Latta wrote in a Nov. 4 letter alongside a dozen other lawmakers.

Line 5 carries about 540,000 barrels of oil and gas per day from Canada to Michigan, according to the pipeline’s operator, Enbridge. The pipeline provides energy to several Midwestern states, including Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana.

Line 5 alone accounts for about 55% of Michigan’s propane supply, Enbridge said. Roughly 320,000 Michigan households primarily rely upon propane for their heating needs.

“We should be remembering the people that are going to be going through the upcoming winter months whether it’s in Michigan or other northern states,” Jason Hayes, the director of environmental policy for the Michigan-based Mackinac Center for Public Policy, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“We have a state in Michigan that uses the most residential propane in the nation,” he continued. “And yet, we’re seriously considering shutting down this pipeline and giving these people not even two or three months notice, just basically saying, ‘well, sorry, you’re gonna be on your own.’”

Hayes added that it’s “extremely poor energy policy” to shut down Line 5 and that the move would be dangerous, considering the number of people dependent on the pipeline. Overall, closing the pipeline would cause at least $20.8 billion in economic losses to Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana, according to a Consumer Energy Alliance study.

Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, meanwhile, has condemned Line 5 repeatedly since taking office. In November 2020, she revoked a 1953 easement allowing Enbridge to operate pipelines in the state, months after she asked the firm to halt operations over environmental concerns.

Enbridge eventually sued Whitmer in federal court, arguing that she doesn’t have the authority to regulate international pipelines, the Associated Press reported.

Last month, the Canadian government invoked a 1977 pipeline treaty between the two nations for the first time ever. The treaty prohibits any action that impedes the transport of hydrocarbons through U.S.-Canada pipelines, including Line 5.

“In response to Michigan’s efforts to shut down Line 5, Canada has raised its significance for Canadian economic and energy security at the highest levels of the U.S. federal government,” Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs Marc Garneau said in a statement. “We have also stressed the importance of fully respecting and implementing the international agreements that are in place between our two countries.”

Since taking office, Biden has taken aim at the fossil fuel industry as part of his aggressive climate agenda. The president revoked the Keystone XL pipeline’s federal permit, ditched an Alaskan drilling project, prohibited new oil and gas leasing on federal lands, introduced sweeping regulations on hydrocarbons and initiated a review of Alaska’s petroleum reserve.

“Gretchen Whitmer and the Biden administration are making it unaffordable for Michigan families to fill their gas tanks and heat their homes,” Eric Ventimiglia, executive director of the conservative group Michigan Rising Action, said in a statement Monday. “The effort to shut down Line 5 is short-sighted, and would put immense financial pressure on families across the state.”

“Shutting down Line 5 would create a humanitarian crisis and exacerbate the dire economic conditions created by the Democrats’ failed policies,” he continued.

‘Intentionally Tearing Us Apart’: Tulsi Gabbard Says ‘More And More Democrats Are Pushing’ Racial Division In America

During an appearance on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Monday, Former Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said that “more and more Democrats are pushing” the racialization of American politics and it is “tearing” the nation apart.


“Unfortunately as we see too often, more and more Democrats are pushing this racialization,” Gabbard told host and Daily Caller co-founder, Tucker Carlson. “They are pushing more fomenting of anger and hatred and divisiveness that really is destroying us. It’s causing more suffering and more harm to the American people and the fabric of our country and undermining these values that our country was founded on,” she continued.

The former Democratic presidential candidate said this division can be seen “in how everything in our the country is being racialized: that this is an intentional strategy to tear us apart based on the color of our skin because they think that there’s some political gain to be had from it and don’t care at all about the destruction that they leave in their wake.”

Gabbard argued that “voters need to reject” the strategy just as they “choose leaders who do put the American people and our country first, who share that objective from both political parties.” She also said Democrats and Republicans must share one absolute political objective: doing what’s best for the U.S.

The former congresswoman pointed to the recent gubernatorial election in Virginia as an example of Democrats dividing Americans, and argued that candidate Terry McAuliffe “represented that fomenting of divisiveness, this racialization, and Virginia voters rejected that.”

As the Virginia election results were broadcast on Nov. 2, some members of the left-wing media said the Republicans were winning because of “white supremacy,” despite the election of Winsome Sears, a black woman, who is now the lieutenant governor-elect in the state.

“[White supremacists] are dangerous, they’re dangerous to our national security because stoking that kind of soft white nationalism eventually leads to the hardcore stuff,” Reid said.

Gabbard has also specifically criticized Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters for using race to “divide” American voters. She has also said Biden’s immigration policy is failing and that he should reconsider reintroducing some of former President Donald Trump’s policies to end an “open border.”

PODCAST: Joe Biden’s Coat Tails?

The recent election on November 2nd was a small, off-year contest. Yet, it was a major victory for Republicans and gives us a sense of what to expect in 2022 and 2024. During the election, the key Virginia positions went to the Republicans, including the governor’s mansion, and it appears the State House is reverting back to GOP control. This news is significant as Virginia was a highly contested state, one which the Democrats were determined to control. Other contests included several House seats which switched back to Republican control, and Minneapolis voters rejected the notion of replacing the police with a public safety department, something Democrats have been fighting for. However, Virginia alone has put the Democrats and their News Media into a panic mode.

All of this adds up to several things:

First, Americans are rejecting the liberal agenda of the Democrats, and prefer common sense solutions and smaller government. In Virginia, the key was school curriculum and the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT). This resulted in vocal school board meetings and President Biden labeling concerned parents as “Domestic Terrorists,” something that enraged the parents. Beyond this, Virginia became a referendum on the national priorities of the President and the Democrats.

The timing of the Democrats couldn’t be worse. After being elected with 81 million votes, which was touted as the most ever cast for a presidential candidate, Biden’s popularity shrunk radically in just nine short months to a 36% approval rating according to ZogbyQuinnipiac University has him at 38%, while Gallup and NBC have him at 42%, which is also low. Further, more than two-thirds of Americans believe the country is heading in the wrong direction, including half of the Democrats. Rasmussen supports this by claiming only 29% think the country is headed in the right direction. All of this is an indictment of President Biden’s policies and the liberal agenda embraced by the Democrats.

During the Virginia race, President Biden, VP Kamala Harris, and former President Obama, campaigned vigorously, all for naught. Instead of concentrating on the Virginia school problem, they opted instead to draw a parallel between former President Trump and Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin, hoping they could touch on the anger issues of the 2020 election. Interestingly, it did not, and in the end, it cost former Democrat Governor Terry McAuliffe the election.

This means President Biden has no coat tails for Democrats to ride on as we approach the critical 2022 mid-term election, which will likely put the Congress back in Republican hands. In other words, his endorsement would mean the kiss of death to Democrats running for office, and they will find themselves alone, fighting for re-election. To take it further, I cannot imagine President Biden running for re-election in 2024, and there is nobody on the horizon to replace him, certainly not Vice President Harris.

Frankly, Democrats should be unnerved by the results of the 2021 election as it foretells the future. The Democrats simply went too far, too fast in pushing their agenda. Between inflation and the economy, illegal immigration, energy, and foreign affairs, the Biden administration has not enjoyed any success by any stretch of the imagination, and Americans are pushing back in the voting booth. Consider this, GOP candidate Youngkin was at a 10 point deficit just a couple of months ago, yet he hung on, rallied the state and won handily as governor. Basically, he has carved a template for other Republicans to follow in 2022.

Yes, this is how unhappy Americans are with the Democrat agenda and President Joe Biden.

BIDEN’S BUILD BACK BETTER: Defund Americans & Fund Illegal Aliens

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels

“My Build Back Better Agenda costs zero dollars.” – President Biden tweet @POTUS

We are now in a true culture war!

If you don’t believe me then you either aren’t seeing what is happening, ignoring what is happening or your a registered Democrat.

Biden’s Build Back Better (BBB) agenda is anti-American and pro-Illegal Alien. Why? For two reasons:

  1. It is anti-American because BBB is defunding we the working people.
  2. It is pro-illegal alien because BBB is funding those who are breaking America’s immigration laws.

It’s the Cultural War, Stupid!

Culture War: a cultural conflict between social groups and the struggle for dominance of their values, beliefs, and practices.

There’s a culture war going on the likes of which we have not seen before. Biden, his administration and the Democrats in Congress want to fundamentally transform the culture in America. The anti-white, anti-black conservatives, anti-straight male and female and anti-anyone who disagrees with the Democrats is palatable.

Bill Clinton famously stated, “It’s the economy, stupid.” That has now changed under Biden to, “It’s the cultural war, stupid.”

The economy is being used to punish the American working class.

Let’s watch a new video from Johan Norberg, which looks at the impact of minimum wage increases in San Diego, California.

As Daniel J. Mitchell reported,

“And some state and local politicians continue to mandate higher minimum wages (see hereherehere, and here), even though that means workers have fewer job opportunities.”

Does this minimum wage craze really help or hurt working Americans? A number of European nations have no mandated minimum wage. As explained in this video, that’s an approach we should copy.

The bottom line is Americans are seeing their job prospects shrink as Democrats work relentlessly to impose the so called “minimum wage” anywhere and everywhere. The problem is that the minimum wage hurts the working class, particularly those just entering the job market and minorities.

Defunding Americans

Democrats are defunding Americans. How are they doing this? Here are some examples since Biden was sworn in:

  1. Shutting down the Keystone XL pipeline. This has lead, along with Biden’s anti-fossil fuels policies, to higher gasoline prices. This is a direct tax on each and every American that drives an internal combustion engine vehicle. This also applies to those who have purchased all electric vehicles as well. You see, under Biden, the cost of electricity has risen.
  2. Closing businesses to stop the Covid pandemic. We saw early on that Democrats in states like New York and California, literally shut down businesses in order to reduce the number of Covid infections. As we now know, those states that kept businesses open did not see a long term spike in Covid infections and by keeping their businesses open helped their working class keep their jobs, health insurance and prosperity.
  3. Mandating that government and healthcare workers get jabbed. This has lead to massive lawsuits against the Biden vaxx mandate. From police, to fire fighters, to healthcare workers to the military the pushback is growing.
  4. Mandating that companies with 100 or more workers get jabbed. This has lead to more lawsuits including 21 states that have sued to stop this mandate because it it hurting the working class.
  5. Mandating children ages 5 years to 11 years old get jabbed. This has caused parents to rebel. We have see the results of this and the idea that parents have no say in their children’s’ education flipped the state of Virginia from blue to red.

All of these Build Back Better policies have harmed ordinary working Americans.

But it gets worse as Biden’s immigration policies are now hurting working Americans even more.

Funding illegal aliens

RJ Hauman in a FAIR Take article titled, “Democrats Inch Closer to Passing Largest Amnesty in American History” wrote:

Late Friday, the House cleared a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill and took a major step toward passage of the $1.85 trillion Build Back Better (BBB) Act, which contains amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.

While BBB did not receive a final vote due to overall cost concerns, President Biden and House leaders said they are confident that will happen the week of Nov. 15.

House Democrats did approve on a party-line 221-213 vote a rule that sets the terms for debate when the BBB comes to the floor.

Over the past few weeks, Democrats worked tirelessly to insert an amnesty for up to 7.1 million illegal aliens into BBB. The Senate Parliamentarian rebuffed similar efforts twice, yet they continue pushing for sweeping immigration changes completely unrelated to federal spending or budget matters.

While the current BBB amnesty provision does not include a pathway to citizenship for those eligible, it is still an amnesty, providing protection from deportation and work authorization.

Amnesty is defined by Black’s Law Dictionary as “A pardon extended by the government to a group or class of persons, usu. for a political offense; the act of a sovereign power officially forgiving certain classes of persons who are subject to trial but have not yet been convicted.” (emphasis mine).

Read the full column.

In the FAIR Take column “Biden Flip-Flops, Supports Payouts to Illegal Aliens” Preston Huennekens wrote:

On October 28, the Wall Street Journal broke the story that the Justice Department planned to give some illegal aliens payments of $450,000 each. The eligible illegal aliens are those who the U.S. government “separated” in 2018 when the Trump administration initiated its so-called “zero tolerance” policy that criminally prosecuted all illegal aliens for crossing the border. The total cost to taxpayers could tally well over $1 billion.

[ … ]

The press held President Biden accountable as well. Peter Doocy from Fox News asked President Biden whether the reporting was accurate. The President said “that’s not going to happen,” referring to the reported payments. However, the White House backtracked on those comments days later. Then, on November 4, a White House spokesperson said that President Biden is “perfectly comfortable” paying illegal aliens $450,000 each.

So now Biden is funding illegals but defunding Americans.


As I wrote in my column “Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ Big Lies,”

Political satire has now become public policy under Biden. But is anyone laughing? We think not. People are waking up and we are seeing civil disobedience protests against Biden and his policies growing, not just in the U.S. but globally.

Biden is just another in a long line of tax and spend big government socialists. From FDR to Carter to Clinton to Obama. They’re all birds of a feather who flock together to tax the rich and every single working American to death. Some have even characterized the Biden administration as Obama 2.0!

It’s now clear that Biden’s Build Back Better agenda is causing crimes to be committed against humanity both foreign and domestic.

Gird your loins. Pray! Our only hope is to retake one or both houses of Congress in 2022.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) gets it in this interview.

Lawless and feckless. What a combination. A disaster since Biden’s inauguration.

We hope Democrats wake up and smell the BBB garbage in time. But don’t hold your collective breaths.

VIDEO: 2021 America First Experience & Gala Keynote Remarks by President Donald J. Trump

Full remarks by the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, the keynote speaker at the 2021 America First Experience & Gala at the Mar-a-Lago Resort in West Palm Beach, Florida on Thursday, November 4, 2021.


The America First movement is everywhere. It’s in our small towns. It’s in our homes. It’s in our hearts and dreams. It’s the stuff of our hopes and the core of our values — and it is the country’s future.

On one extraordinary evening this past week, the America First movement coalesced at the home, and in the presence, of the man who created and catalyzed it: President Donald J. Trump. Joined by champions, thinkers, heroes, and luminaries of the America First movement, the President came to the America First Policy Institute’s first annual gala with a message — and a heart for America’s fight:

“We want our children to be taught to be proud of their history, and to be grateful for our priceless American heritage … We put our trust in God, not government. We believe in sovereignty, not globalism. And we believe in freedom, not socialism.”

Close in the wake of Tuesday’s tremendous election victories, Thursday’s gathering of the America First movement was a resounding note: that the work is already bearing fruit — and also that it has only just begun.

If you were with us, you know what it was like. If you weren’t, then please enjoy this video of the President’s remarks. We hope you can join us next year. For us at the America First Policy Institute, just 250 days in, we are at the end of the beginning — and what a beginning it’s been.

America First, Always.

Beware of Free College Offered on a Sharp Knife

   – Sounds pretty cool today, but what happens when soft tyranny hardens?

Something for America’s new indoctrinated youth to keep in mind about Marxist Socialism is that the authorities keep files on each child from birth to death.  So, the free “education” they will be receiving is according to their obedience and unconditional loyalty to the regime at all times.  Some of their duty is to report what their parents and friends say in private that shows of political “deviation.”  No dissent is allowed and they punish the citizens who disagree.  Depending on this loyalty you can have access to a university or college after high school, but they cannot chose their career.

For example, if the regime needs teachers, that’s the ONLY option.  If they need doctors, engineers, architects, mechanics, or other professions, free education is in accordance with the needs of the regime ONLY.  After graduation, the regime sends them to places far away where they are obligated to serve for a numbers of years.  They cannot change jobs unless the regime decides to transfer them to another location. They cannot chose where they want to live; they live ONLY where the regime places them. Vacations are designated by the regime and awarded in accordance with the conduct of the employee at work.  Everything in life is in accordance with your conduct, because everything is political in Marxist Socialist regimes.

However, the children of the ruling elite have special schools separated from the regular citizens, plus other benefits not available to the rest of the population, like free healthcare which is very good for the ruling elite but lousy for the rest of the population.  So much for “equity,” equality” and “social justice”.  That’s a BIG LIE they use to hook people into Marxist Socialist doctrine.  They are masters of deception.

Food and clothing in reality are what the regime allows.  Like in Cuba, we were eating elbow macaroni for lunch and dinners for almost a year.  There was nothing else to eat.  The food was rationed as well as clothing and other items of personal use.  Toilet paper?  Forget about toilet paper!

I am not enumerating all the inconveniences I suffered in communist Cuba because it would take volumes.

So you, the new indoctrinated youth of America, are exchanging all your freedoms and ability to think for yourselves for a highly regulated and dictatorial existence without a future.

The Unmasking of Dr. Mengele S. Fauci

Irony of ironies: members of the feckless GOP that not only stood by while Dr. Snake Eyes  brought America to her knees through bizarre, uncalled for “lockdowns” and “mask-ups,” but also did nothing as he pushed a dangerous experimental gene-disrupting shot on our public while virtually banning therapeutics that work against Covid, are now suddenly outraged and calling for his resignation—not because he’s responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths of Americans, which he is, but because he tortured puppies.


As we saw with Cuomo, who’s guilty of murdering thousands of elderly New Yorkers in nursing homes, but was taken down for having groped a woman, we can at times dethrone a perpetrator of evil, but we may never assault the narrative. So the Fauch can be removed, but the narrative he espoused for the past two years must remain intact and sacrosanct. Thus the Beagle puppies shall be sacrificed for the second time—this time to give their tormentor cover.

Why did the puppy story suddenly surface now? Perhaps in advance of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s book, The Real Anthony Fauci, which is coming out on November 16th. And perhaps because some people are currently revisiting suspicious death of Kary Mullis—inventor  of the PCR technique. Mullis has been dubbed “Fauci’s worst enemy.” He died in 2019 shortly before the PCR test, which he’d been adamant was only for research and should never be used diagnostically, was co-opted by the CDC et al.. Hmmmm….

But why the puppy story in the first place? Presumably the powers-that-be couldn’t find a woman willing to testify the Fauch had manhandled her against her will, so they had to look  elsewhere to come up with a story that would arouse even Democrats against him, but would leave the Plandemic narrative intact.

Unsurprisingly, slippery Tony is already slithering out of PuppyGate by apparently getting underlings to claim it wasn’t his organization that funded the torture of healthy purebred Beagle pups—similar to the way he tried to pin the Gain-of-Function bat virus research on EcoHealth Alliance.


Many of us have been watching Tony “the weasel” Fauci prevaricate time and again, while maintaining his duper’s delight sly half-smile, so the recent exposure of a new Faucian atrocity came as no surprise. Indeed, those who’ve watched Dr. Judy Mikovits tell her riveting story, and/or have read her excellent book Plague of Corruption, are already well versed in Tricky Tony’s sneaky ways and diabolical character. Unlike Dr. FauxChi, Mikovits is a real scientist as well as a brave whistleblower and truth teller. Fauci destroyed her career when she exposed the harm coming from certain vaccines back in the day. You’ve got to admit he’s good at protecting his own bottom line, as well as that of his Big Pharma masters.

Did you know that Dr. Kary Mullis  hated Fauci? Mullis and Mikovits are actual scientists; they seek the truth. Dr. FauxPas, on the other hand, is two-thirds crooked Mafia don, and one-third mediocre scientist, if that. Did you know 1,000 lawyers and 10,000 doctors have filed a lawsuit against the CDC, the WHO and others who are responsible for foisting the experimental gene “therapy” inoculations on an unsuspecting public, charging them with violation the Nuremberg Code? And who has been the kingpin all along, holding the American people hostage—first, to a virus, then to a “vaccine”? Who indeed!


No doubt that in his new book, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. will unearth many more crimes perpetrated by the good doctor, but just a cursory glance at Fauci’s relatively recent doings yields the following list:

  • AIDS scandal: Promoted only the dangerous, toxic drug AZT for AIDS patients—“one of the most toxic, expensive and controversial drugs in the history of medicine,” according to investigative journalist Celia Farber.

Big Pharma made millions with Fauci helping to push “drug that was worse than the disease, and killed faster than the natural progression of AIDS left untreated”. In 1989, says commentator Kim Iversen, Fauci started promoting the drug not only for critically ill AIDS patients, but for anyone who tested positive for HIV, including those who were asymptomatic and showed no sign of the disease. Hmmm…ring a bell, perhaps?

  • Gain of Function:  Consider this: If it hadn’t been for Herr Doktor Tony Felóny funding the original “gain-of-function” research that resulted in SARS-CoV-2, we would never have experienced this “pandemic,” there would be no vaccine mandates, Trump would still be President, our small businesses would be flourishing, we would have been blissfully spared the toilet paper shortage, and life would have continued on as normal without missing a beat. I rest my case.

But in case you missed the background on this one: Fauci funded the creation of a bioweapon, which is what GoF is all about—first at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill under Ralph  Baric—and then, when this dangerous research was declared illegal in the U.S., Fauci cleverly outsourced it to the infamous bioweapons lab in Wuhan, China.

The rest, as they say, is history.

  • Discrediting/banning HCQ and Ivermectin: Early, safe treatment was not to be allowed! Doctor Evil put the kibosh on Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) which was saving lives around the world, saying it needed “further study.” Ummm…Tony…I’m curious. How come the brand new never-tried-before mRNA “vaccines” didn’t need further study?

Let’s take a look at some numbers: “Some medical experts have estimated that as many as 100,000 lives could potentially have been saved if Hydroxychloroquine had been widely used in 2020.”  And here’s a tweet by Peter Navarro in June of 2021: “I had 60 million tablets of HCQ that Tony Fauci … wouldn’t allow the American public to use because of their Hydroxy Hysteria. Blood on @JohnBerman @cnn and Saint Fauci’s hands. More than 50,000 Americans would be alive today.”

As soon as President Trump recommended Hydroxychloroquine and rushed to secure millions of doses for the American people, Fauci did all he could to block our access to it. After all, with a real cure like HCQ plus zinc, who’d opt for a Frankensteinian vaccine?

  • Shutting down America: Who can forget that in 2020, the Coronavirus Task Force’s Medical Director Faussolini more or less ordered Americans to stay home, mask up, “flatten the curve,” shut their businesses, keep their kids home from school, and wait to either get sick and die in a hospital, or to get the infamous Moderna vaccine from which his NIAID organization stood to handsomely profit. Never mind the “collateral damage” his program was wreaking: decimation of the middle class, evaporation of people’s life’s work, isolation, closed churches and synagogues, depression, suicides, untold hardship, increased poverty, and general misery for most Americans. But Fauci never blinked. In fact, he seems to thrive on making others suffer.

Of course, bringing America to her knees through the faux pandemic was the plan the Deep State and their globalist pals hatched to set President Trump up for failure by wiping out all his gains in the economy. Amazingly, the Trumpian landslide was so great that even after using the Plandemic to rationalize the need for dicey universal mail-in voting, the Dems still had to monkey with the Dominion cheating machines in the middle of the night to effect their planned coup d’etat. But I digress….

  • Remdesivir: While the Fauch dealt the deathblow to HCQ and Ivermectin as treatments for Covid, he did see fit to promote one drug: Remdesivir. It may be a coincidence that HCQ and Ivermectin have been around for decades and are very cheap, and that Remdesivir is very new and extremely expensive. Make of that what you will.

However, it is also true that Remdesivir, not unlike AZT from Fauci’s checkered past, has an unfortunate tendency to kill at least 25% of the patients who take it, by damaging their kidneys. And tragically, it is being given to people in hospitals even against their will!

Dr. Bryan Ardis believes that the use of the dangerous Remdesivir drug is the #1 cause of deaths in COVID wards today, not COVID itself. He also states that hospitals are being incentivised financially to recommend Remdesivir over other drugs. Money talks.

  • The Experimental mRNA vaccines: The Pièce de Résistance has got to be the Covid vaccines and the unconstitutional attempts to mandate them for, well…everyone—except for Congress and friends, that is. Many people have written at great length about the harm these dangerous inoculations do once injected into the body. One of the most serious ones, which seems to be pervasive, is the formation of tiny blood clots in one’s capillaries, that grow over time and go on to cause heart attacks or strokes, as well as harming other vital organs.

Tragically, we now have vaccinated children, especially boys, with myocarditis—inflammation of the heart. Dr. Roger Hodkinson, pathologist, had this to say: “Myocarditis is never mild, particularly in young healthy males.  It’s an inflammation of the heart muscle, the pump of the body.  …The big thing about heart muscle, heart muscle fibers, is that they do not regenerate.”

And you’ve probably read of pilots having strokes in mid-flight after being vaccinated for Covid. This is also an apparent result of the vaccine’s clot-forming mechanism—only one of the many mechanisms of injury from these shots.

  • PuppyGate: It turns out that Feckless Fauci’s funding of the insanely cruel “experiment” on Beagle pups, in light of his lengthy malevolent career, amounts to no more than a brief footnote. How ironic, and what a sad commentary on our society, if it turns out to be the straw that breaks the Fauxster’s back.

In sum: If we were to add up all the deaths that can be laid at Fauci’s door, the number is at least in the hundreds of thousands, and could well be in the millions—and how many more are yet to come in the aftermath of the nationwide vaccine program?


Let’s face an uncomfortable fact: the estimable Dr. Fauci, revered by so many trusting Americans, appears to be a bona fide psychopath. Who but a psychopath would sneakily fund “gain-of–function” research courtesy of a bioweapons lab in Communist China,  and then knowingly promote untested, experimental vaccines that cause people’s bodies to manufacture that very same dangerous “gain-of-function” spike protein, while dissuading people who were sick and likely to die if left untreated, from using truly safe and effective, inexpensive therapeutics such as HCQ and zinc, or Ivermectin? What is this if not a genocidal agenda, unleashed at least in part by a snake wearing a suit?

Speaking of the suffering inflicted by Fauci and his demonic globalist masters: Have you seen videos of erstwhile healthy young women with suddenly shaking limbs or whole-body incessant seizures as a result of being vaxxed? How do we know those videos are authentic? Simple: The fact-checkers have come out in droves to explain them away by claiming these women are suffering from a psychosomatic illness brought on by stress. Nice try, guys.

Add that to the current VAERS numbers of Covid vaccine serious adverse events and deaths: Listed on Open VAERS, from December 2020 to October 29, 2021: 856,917 Adverse Events; Deaths: 18,409. These numbers are shocking. They are higher than the adverse events and deaths from all other vaccines in America from 1990 to the present. Why oh why is this carnage allowed to continue? Ask the smirking little man in the white lab coat.

At this point, the parallels to Dr. Mengele are legion.


I’ll let Fauci have the last word—well, the penultimate word at least.

Here’s what Fauci told Canadian Broadcasting host Nahlah Ayed, as subsequently quoted in Newsweek: “It is just mind-boggling. I mean, if I were some diabolical, evil spirit and I wanted to cast upon the world the worst time to get an outbreak, it’s when you have this kind of combination of divisiveness with the complete accessibility and spread of complete falsehood. There is nothing worse than that in the middle of a pandemic.”

I don’t know about you, but I find it revealing that the inimitable Dr. Fauci actually fantasized on the air about being a demon inflicting a pandemic upon the world, and doing so at the worst possible time. Was this a public confession masquerading as an attack on the “vaccine hesitant”? You be the judge.

In any case, millions of Americans no doubt agree that we’re besieged by falsehoods, but point the finger back at you, Tony, since you and your Big Pharma cronies have been lying to us all along. And millions of us recognize the divisiveness you allude to, but view it as stemming from Beijing Biden’s stolen White House, Big Tech, Big Pharma and assorted allies, as they brutally stomp on our rights, including those of free speech, assembly, religion, and individual autonomy.

Millions of us realize the plan is to impoverish and enslave those of us who manage to escape your lethal injections.  The globalist Cabal you serve may continue to try to herd us into conformity with their deadly and dystopian plans for depopulation and the so-called Great Reset.

But we’re not giving in or giving up. We’re not complying. Not now. Not ever.

And as to your being “a diabolical evil spirit,” you know what they say,  Tony: “If the shoe fits, wear it!”

9 Truths From Aaron Rodgers’ Explosive Vaxx Interview You Aren’t Allowed To Say

“Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” ― George Orwell

9 Truths From Aaron Rodgers’ Explosive Vaxx Interview You Aren’t Allowed To Say

‘For the media out there taking shots at me, you don’t know my story. Now you do. So quit lying about me.’

By: Kylee Zempel,  The Federalist, November 7, 2021:

You don’t have to like Aaron Rodgers to pump your fist when he drops COVID truth bombs on a hit sports talk show.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback, who is currently under fire from the COVID scolds for being “secretly” unvaccinated and contracting the virus, joined “The Pat McAfee Show” to discuss his situation. And let’s just say he didn’t hold back. Here are the top nine most based things Rodgers said.

1. ‘You’re Selfish’ Smear Is Media Propaganda

The idea that “unvaccinated people are the most dangerous people in society,” is the media’s “propaganda narrative,” Rodgers said.

“That is what the media has been trying to do, they’re trying to shame and out and cancel all of us non-vaccinated people, call us selfish,” he continued. “I mean that’s the propaganda line too now: You’re selfish for making a decision that’s in the best interest of your body.”

2. Personal Health Should Be Private

“Personal health decisions, in my opinion, should be private,” Rodgers said after going after the media for “taking shots” at him. “And they should haven’t to be … over-scrutinized by, you know, people who are only pushing their own propaganda.”

The media went berserk this week after the quarterback tested positive, writing long screeds and ranting on air about how Rodgers had “lied” about his vaccination status back in August by saying he had been “immunized.”

“For the media out there taking shots at me, you don’t know my story. Now you do. So quit lying about me,” Rodgers said.

3. ‘Pandemic of the Unvaccinated’ Is a Lie

Rodgers took a straight shot at President Joe Biden and all who carry water for his narrative by obliterating the talking point that COVID-19 is now a “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” something the federal government continues to double down on with its sweeping vaccine mandate.

“This idea that it’s a pandemic of the unvaccinated, it’s a just a total lie,” Rodgers said before refuting the falsehood. “If the vaccine is so great, then how come people are still getting COVID and spreading COVID and unfortunately dying from COVID? If the vaccine is so safe, then how come the manufactures of the vaccine have full immunity [from lawsuits]?”

There’s a lot we still don’t know about the shot, he continued, saying that it’s “wrong and reckless” to market it as a cure-all.

4. The Left Politicized the Vaxx

“The problem with this is it is so political, and health shouldn’t be political,” Rodgers warned.

“We all should have been a little hesitant. When Trump in 2020 was championing these vaccines that were coming so quick, what did the left say? … Don’t trust the vaccine. Don’t get the vaccine,” he continued. “What happened? Biden wins and everything flips. Shouldn’t that give you a little bit of pause? … Isn’t this about health, not politics?”

If this is really about health instead of politics, Rodgers probed, why haven’t any of the health experts been talking about diet, exercise, or vitamins?

5. The Vaxxed Are Still Infectious

Rodgers said that because he is unvaccinated, he is required to undergo COVID testing every day, while all the vaccinated players do not have to, despite their ability still to contract and transmit the virus.

“I tested over 300 times before finally testing positive. Like I said, it was probably from a vaccinated individual,” Rodgers said. “I don’t think that many of the policies are rooted in the science.”

“The only time I haven’t worn my mask is when I’m around all vaccinated people,” he added.

6. ‘Health Is Not a One-Size-Fits-All’

“Health is not a one-size-fits-all for everybody,” Rodgers announced, adding that he was allergic to an ingredient in the mRNA vaccines. Enough said.

7. COVID Recovery Offers Robust Immunity

“I’m going to have the best immunity possible now,” Rodgers said, citing the study from Israel on the robust immunity acquired from COVID infection and recovery.

The facts support this. Epidemiologist and biostatistician Martin Kulldorff, who was a professor at Harvard Medical School for a decade, recently published an analysis breaking down the methodology of different studies on natural immunity. He demonstrated how the Israeli study, the one Rodgers cited, is superior in its methodology and precision of its findings than the prevailing study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“There’s a lot to natural immunity, and natural immunity has not been a part of the conversation,” Rodgers added.

8. Science Is Better Than Shaming

“Some of the rules to me are not based in science at all,” Rodgers said of the many rules he had already illustrated that were not based in science. “They’re based purely in trying to out and shame people, like needing to wear a mask at a podium when every person in the room is vaccinated and wearing a mask makes no sense to me.”

“Bodily autonomy is a right, and the shaming and the outing that, you know, people seem to get off on so much of finding these people who, you know, ‘Oh my God, can you believe these crackpots who are not vaccinated?’ Everybody has their own story … and their own reasons for doing things. But this shaming cancel society is wrong.”

9. Overall Health Is Important Too

“It’s a virus of health, and the most important thing would be educating people on how to live a healthier life,” Rodgers said regarding the pandemic that was exacerbated mightily by comorbidities and especially obesity.

Early data showed that obesity tripled a person’s risk of hospitalization, and 78 percent of those hospitalized with the Wuhan virus were overweight or obese.

Bill reintroduced to designate Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization

This is timely, as Biden’s handlers appear to be once again aiding the Brotherhood, as Obama did during his first two terms as well.

Republican Senators Reintroduce Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act

Asharq Al-Awsat, November 6, 2021:

A draft bill presented by several US Republican Senators to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization sparked controversy, as many officials warn of its repercussions on Washington’s relations with several friendly and allied countries.

US Senators Ted Cruz, Jim Inhofe, and Ron Johnson led a move that reintroduced the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act.

The bill urges the Department of State to use its statutory authority to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).

Cruz said that it’s time that “we join our allies in the Arab world in formally recognizing the Muslim Brotherhood for what they truly are—a terrorist organization.”

“I’m proud to reintroduce this bill to urge the Biden administration to designate them as such and advance our nation’s fight against terrorism.”

The Senator stressed that “we have a duty to hold the Muslim Brotherhood accountable for their role in financing and promoting terrorism across the Middle East.”

Earlier, Cruz criticized the Biden administration and Democratic senators from the House Committee on Appropriations for withholding $130 million worth of military aid to Egypt until Cairo released some Muslim Brotherhood political prisoners.

He also “blasted” President Biden’s nominee for Assistant Secretary of State for Near East Affairs, Barbara Leaf, slamming the Senate Democrats for trying to release “Muslim Brotherhood propagandist” who is “anti-semite and hate preacher.”

US and Egypt will launch the strategic dialogue on Monday with the two delegations led by Foreign Ministers Anthony Blinken and Sameh Shoukry in Washington.

However, Republican and Democratic lawmakers objected to such bills, saying that classifying the group as terrorists may not be helpful because it is no longer a unified organization.

They warn that such classification might harm the US relations with many friendly and allied countries, led by Turkey. They also note that some Muslim Brotherhood affiliates who are not classified as extremists are members of Arab governments and parliaments….

A courageous feminist defends the rights of reality against the trans mob

In the very first line of her introduction, written with admirable clarity and courage, as is the entire book, Kathleen Stock outlines her program:

“This book is about sex, and about the mysterious thing known as ‘gender’. It is about how, in the first quarter of the twenty-first century … a philosophical theory about something called ‘gender identity’ gripped public consciousness, strongly influencing UK and international institutions….”

Stock is an analytic philosopher based at the University of Sussex, with a keen interest in language and fiction. Her philosophical competence is beyond question: it emerges in every line of this book. It is this acute consciousness of the usage of language, and of how the way in which we use language brings us either closer to truth and reality, or else causes us to become increasingly entangled in a dream world of our own making, which makes the analysis in this book so very penetrating.

There are eight thoroughly-researched chapters. One caveat is that it does not include an index, which in a work of this kind would be most useful. Stock’s research into important biological, medical, legal, historical and social matters has been very thorough. Some of this is very difficult material to read, precisely because of the delicacy of the matters involved: we are talking about people at their most vulnerable here.

Chapter One gives a brief history of the concept of gender identity, emphasising that this is an extreme claim that biological sex is irrelevant and does not exist. In any case, only trans people would have a right to comment.

We are faced with a straight fight between gender identity and sex – which brings us to Chapters Two and Three, “What is Sex?” and “Why Does Sex Matter?” The author deals first with the physical dimension of the subject, demonstrating that biological sex is not merely a philosophical construct. It seems extraordinary that this has to be demonstrated, but this is where we are …

In Chapter Three, she examines the reasons why sex is relevant and cannot be dismissed. She gives a thorough account of same-sex attraction from her own lesbian point of view here. It would be interesting to compare her account with Paul Vitz’s account of similar matters in his most recent book, an essay written by an expert psychologist from a Catholic perspective.

But Stock’s central point stands in any case: biological sex exists, it is important in the life of any individual, whatever their eventual decision about it for a variety of physical, medical and psychological reasons.

She is at pains to emphasise that she sympathises completely with individual trans people. Her target is not individuals, but the activism that uses them to deny reality and alter legislation in ways that are positively harmful to very vulnerable people. Women prisoners, for example, have to endure incarceration with convicted rapists who identify as female. Why did we decide to have women’s prisons to begin with? Female criminals may not be the most sympathetic group of people, but they are extremely vulnerable.

“What is Gender Identity?” and What Makes a Woman?” give extensive philosophical and linguistic analysis of the terms and concepts involved in gender identity theory and sexual identity. “Gender identity” was first coined to fit a particular concept in the 1960s by John Money and Robert Stoller. It is described as follows:

“… trans people are defined, not as people who have had surgery, or taken hormones, or who dress and behave in particular ways, but as people whose gender identities are misaligned with the sex ‘assigned’ to them at birth. Cis people are those whose gender identities align with birth assigned sex. And either way … gender identity is what make you man, woman, or neither.”

Most of us are aware that the term “gender” has replaced the term “sex” in many institutional contexts but trans ideologues apply in all contexts, including the biological.

Traditionally, “sex” has a distinct biological significance, while “gender” is used when biological sex is not at issue – mostly the assignation of gender to words for inanimate objects in several languages, an assignation which is purely arbitrary. The shift in usage from “sex” to “gender” in the human context implies that human beings are similar and that “male” and “female” are assignations just as arbitrary as grammatical gender.

The author is writing as a feminist, so her emphasis is on women, but a similar analysis could be done on the concept of “man”.

She concludes Chapter Five by stating, as gently as she can, that trans women are not women in the same sense as biological females are women; these are fundamentally different biological and conceptual realities. She adds that she understands that this statement will come as a shock to readers who have been taught that there is no meaningful difference. She is at pains to emphasise that this does not imply criticism of individuals, but is simply the establishment of a distinction, which must be maintained legally for the well-being of all concerned.

Chapter Six, “Immersed in a Fiction”, is a very interesting exploration of the conceptual underpinnings of the UK 2004 Gender Recognition Act (GRA) and Gender Recognition Certificates. Stock argues that this legislation constitutes an extended legal fiction. Her account of the passage of this legislation makes for grimly entertaining reading.

She notes that many people are now making statements about trans women being women and so on. They act as if these things are true, i.e., they are immersed in a fiction –but they don’t literally think so.

She also explores the toxic internet culture and remarks that the rising frequency of claims of gender dysphoria in the young correlate with the rising immersion in virtual worlds. She does not condemn immersion outright, but she remarks that there are risks, particularly at the institutional level “once powerful figures become immersed in a fiction, and seek to compel the same attitude in others”.

Chapter Seven, “How Did We get Here”, revisits some of the territory explored by Helen Joyce in her recent book Trans: When Ideology Meets Reality. Stock recapitulates the tactics of activists over the past several decades: appeals for compassion; comparisons of “victims” to a previous group of victims whose claims are now recognised to be just; manipulation of facts and statistics; and violent suppression of disagreement.

She also notes that the femininity adopted by trans activists is facilitated by the representation of women in the media, which is increasingly focussed on external appearance, hair, make-up, clothes, an attitude of submissiveness … If these things make a woman, anyone who adopts them can claim to be a woman. She notes the particularly damaging effect of pornography.

Finally in Chapter Eight, Stock outlines what we need: more honesty; a wider range of perspectives; and reliance on empirical data rather than speculative theory. Here she notes the extraordinary career of Judith Butler “who – with relatively few empirical observations in the entirety of her work on gender – has nonetheless managed to convince large number of people that biological sex does not exist.”

She lists important questions. How many trans children are there? What are the long-term outcomes for children who receive puberty blockers? How many detransitioners are there?

Detransitioners, often children who were encouraged by adults to transition early, are pariahs in contemporary gender studies. Nobody wants to admit they exist, and, like women who have had abortions, their suffering does not count.

Stock remarks that that she is not afraid of a fight. She certainly got one. A ferocious campaign was organised to get her fired from her job at the University of Sussex. A counter petition was organised by some of the most distinguished names in philosophy. The Oxford Thomist Joseph Shaw wryly remarked that he had never imagined he would see that day when he would sign a petition with Peter Singer of Princeton.

Unfortunately, the controversy has taken a toll on her personal life. At the end of October she announced that she had quit. “This has been an absolutely horrible time for me and my family. I’m putting it behind me now. On to brighter things soon, I hope.”

This is an important book, and I hope that it reaches a wide audience.

Meet China’s low-profile, discreet, but powerful spiritual director

Life is full of surprises and a big one came at us just the other day – from a Chinese guy.

Not just any Chinese guy, but an ardent Chinese nationalist who is First Secretary of the Central Secretariat of the Communist Party of China. Now wait a minute — how can a Chinese nationalist be atop a Chinese communist party? Well, in today’s topsy-turvy world, China, with the ruling Communist party, has a robustly capitalist economy on an unabashedly China-first mission. That is nationalism on steroids. From an economic perspective, it is winning the day. Long gone is the crippling Communist Manifesto claptrap about abolition of private property that defined the old Communist bloc.

But back to the Chinese guy. Who is he? Wang Huning. Never heard of him? You have now. Thanks to a brilliant analytical essay by N.S. Lyons, “The Triumph and Terror of Wang Huning,” we can learn much from Dr Wang’s insight.

Born in 1955, at university he proved himself an intellectual heavyweight. He was writing books in academia until recruited by the government, where he rocketed through the ranks to hold various government positions, including Director of the Central Guidance Commission on Building Spiritual Civilization. Yes, there is such a commission.

Wang is one of the most influential people in China, though very much behind the scenes. The ideas man behind the “China Dream,” the Belt and Road Initiative and anti-corruption campaigns, he is also credited with “Xi Jinping Thought,” which is now the impetus for a campaign to increase Chinese fertility.

Wang is not just pro-China. He is pro-Chinese. He doesn’t want his people to wither away. He’s a fan of Confucian Civic Virtue, which stresses conscientious citizenship, a major part of which is marriage and family. As Confucius actually did say: “It is most unfilial to have no offspring.” Wang is behind the current surge of interest in Confucius, which serves the dual purposes of highlighting Chinese heritage while providing a homegrown philosophical alternative to Western-style commercialism.

There is no doubt that Wang cares very much for his people. But he is also an astute observer of others. In 1988 he was a visiting scholar in the United States. While traversing the erstwhile land of the free and home of the brave, he visited 20 universities and was alarmed by what he observed.

He was so distressed by America’s nascent nihilism that he wrote a book about it, America Against America, published in 1991. He realized that the moral and cultural relativism prevalent in American universities was leading to a wholesale abandonment of traditional Western-centric ideals in favor of PC post-modernism.

Wang believed that such a pernicious process was bringing on a collapse of moral values in America, where “There is no value system in society that can be used as a value system to guide individual decisions, and university education does not provide such a system.”

Now step back for a minute and consider: In 1988 a young scholar from China, a poor country at the time, finds himself in a strange (and quite wealthy) land for a few months and figures out in short order that the US higher-education industry is essentially a fraud, severely undermining the social fabric of American society. Wow. Many Americans, even those not indoctrinated by Marxist professors, never figure that out.

Wang also saw the fallacy of believing that all can be fixed if almighty government throws money at it. The American political class has long believed that with enough money we can stop crime, make everyone equal (equal opportunity is passé), and get everyone “educated.” It doesn’t work. So the remedy is to throw even more money at it. Recall Albert Einstein’s words: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” Mr Wang:

In the face of intricate social and cultural problems, Americans tend to think of them as scientific and technological problems. Or is it a matter of money (which is a result of the spirit of commercialism) rather than a matter of people or subjectivity.

A matter of people. Hmm… the good Wang Huning may be on to something!

And something else he observed about America (translation):

The average family must let their children become independent early and cannot afford to provide for them, so they are unable to love [provide]. In turn, children love their parents, but parents cannot depend on their children for their old age, and children cannot afford it, so children cannot love [provide] either. This relationship has far-reaching consequences for society. Parents have to rely on the social security or welfare system in their old age, but not on their children.

Aristotle said more than 2,000 years ago that the family is the cell of society. In the years since the war, the cell, the family, has disintegrated in the United States.

Spot on! Mr Wang doesn’t want to see family breakdown transition China to a woke, thoroughly materialistic, nihilist society – as he views America.

Many young Chinese have an outlook on life that is troublesome to Wang. He believes that the get-rich-quick mentality, all-or-nothing careerism and obsessive consumerism have done great social harm and that Western commercialism and its attendant popular culture are responsible. Look no further than China’s 2020 fertility rate, one of the world’s lowest at 1.3 (by official estimate), 38 percent below the 2.1 replacement level.

He knows that nagging Chinese youth to get married and have children is useless. From the N.S. Lyons essay:

Ending family size limits and government attempts to persuade families to have more children have been met with incredulity and ridicule by Chinese young people as being “totally out of touch” with economic and social reality. “Do they not yet know that most young people are exhausted just supporting themselves?” asked one typically viral post on social media. It’s true that, given China’s cut-throat education system, raising even one child costs a huge sum: estimates range between US$30,000 (about seven times the annual salary of the average citizen) and $115,000, depending on location.

But even those Chinese youth who could afford to have kids have found they enjoy a new lifestyle: the coveted DINK (“Double Income, No Kids”) life, in which well-educated young couples (married or not) spend all that extra cash on themselves.

In 2013 there were 23.86 million marriages in China. There were 13.99 million in 2019. In 2019, 14.65 million births were registered. There were 10.03 million in 2020, a 15 percent decline.

China’s working-age population has decreased by well over three million each year for the last decade. Last year there were 4.9 Chinese workers supporting each senior citizen. Given current fertility, by 2050 there will be 1.6 workers to do so. China’s population is projected to shrink by almost 50 percent by 2100. China’s day in the sun may not last long.

So Wang Huning has a daunting challenge ahead. He is behind the unfolding campaign to change the culture – promoting Confucianism, the three-child policy, the masculinization campaign, capping rent increases, limiting access to video games, tightening abortion restriction, and curtailing online exposure of “alternative” lifestyles.

China’s pro-natalist campaign is just getting started. There is much more to come. With any luck, getting married and having children will become the “in” thing for young Chinese. It will be interesting to see where all this leads.

Where is America’s Wang Huning?
